Online versus distance versus face-to-face teaching – implications for educators
The next Manchester Online Learning Interest Group (MOLIG) will take place on Wednesday 13 November at CityLabs from 9.00am to 1.00pm.
The theme for our Autumn event is Online versus distance versus face-to-face learning and the implications for educators.
Featuring keynote speaker Professor Don Passey, Professor of Technology Enhanced Learning at Lancaster University, Don will explore the differences between online, distance and face-to-face teaching, highlighting the nuances between online and distance. These terms are often used interchangeably yet require very different teaching and learning approaches.
This event will offer those working in the online and blended learning space the chance to reflect on the different learning models from both a conceptual and practical perspective and consider implications for us as teachers and educators in applying it to our everyday practice.
There’ll be an opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from across the University and find out more about the new Research Skills in Practice toolkit that UWM is developing.
